Madiha Shah

Madiha Shah was born as Rubina Butt in 1970. Later known as Madiha Shah, she was the top-ranking heroine of Pakistani cinema from late 80’s to early 90’s. She started her career as a model, and one of her friends introduced her to television. Her first play, Hari Bhari Chhaon in Punjabi, was aired from Lahore Television. In 1989 she did Rashid Dar’s T.V. play Sauraj Ke Sath Saath, in which she played the role of disabled girl with defective leg. After that she acted in many serials and plays. Her performances were so outstanding that she was approached to act in films by several film directors, but she refused until director Altaf Hussain offered her a role opposite Shan in Nagina. Since then, Madiha Shah has acted in dozens of films.

In the beginning, her family disapproved of her career in films, but eventually her mother accepted her daughter’s decision to be an actress. Her father, a senior government official, still disapproves of Madiha’s career.

Notable films include Zameen Asmaan, Laat Sahib, Main Ne Pyar Kiya, Pyasa Sawan, Nangey Paoon, Munda Kashmiri, Main Jeena Chahti Hoon, Nargis and  Nagina. Nowadays, she is mostly seen on stage shows performing mujras.

On a personal note, Madiha Shah was briefly married while she was still in her teens, but that marriage did not last long.

  2. Madiha Shah real name is Ruby Butt. In early 1990 she married someone from Syed Family so she took his last name, which is Shah. She gave birth to a daughter who now studies in London who she claims as her sister, shortly after divorced she she joined film industry and became a rival to Reema, and I remember vividly in 1993 when she was top notch actress, her Syed husband provided the proof of their marriage and later divorce and as a consequences her career suffered badly. She was then relegated to insignificant roles and ultimately became a stage actress/dancer. Then she married a local pilot and her mother Nusrat BIBI forced her to divorce him. She is around in her nearly in mid-40s. I remember when one journalist called her real name Rubina Butt and she got so angry that she even didn’t answer his question.
